Richland's Atomic Amber Microbrew
The one and only Atomic Amber Microbrew is a product of Richland Washington's Atomic Ale Brewpub and Eatery. Like all great North American amber ales, Atomic Amber Microbrew is a beer that has a color ranging from pale copper to a light brown. The ale gains its distinct character from the American-variety of hops that produce a high level of bitterness, flavor and a medium to high aroma. On the medium to high side of maltiness, Atomic Amber has medium to low caramel features.
With a medium to a medium-high body, Atomic Amber Microbrew has a slightly fruity flavor and accompanying aroma. This reflects the abundant fresh fruit agriculture of the Columbia Basin region. Its butter-like character is not overt, and a slight yeast haze is to be expected for the bottle-conditioned products.
North American craftbrewers in the Richland Washington area have been working diligently since the early 1980s to preserve the classic beer styles of yesteryear.

This amber ale highlights American innovation with old school techniques.
